I disassembled my 02 CR 250 the other day to see what kind of grease job was done to it after my 1st season of riding on this bike in stock trim. 1st off the swing arm bearings didnt have much grease in them, 1 of the seals looked like it was folded over when installed from the factory hence water entered and started the rusting process good thing I got to it in time. My question is will normal automotive wheel bearing grease (like quaker state makes) work for lubing the swing arm and the rest of the associated suspension bearings? It looked like 1 side had white lithium grease and the other side had wheel bearing grease in the swing arm bearings?
